We're looking for a talented Director of Privacy to join our dynamic and collaborative legal team at Atlassian! You'll be joining a global team of privacy professionals scaling a privacy program that builds customer trust, accelerates our business, and leads our industry on privacy and social impact.
Like our customers, we use Atlassian products to collaborate asynchronously with teams around the world. We believe in building with heart and balance, putting customers first, and delivering thought leadership beyond what's required for "minimum legal compliance." It helps to bring a growth mindset, a desire to use and understand our products, intellectual curiosity, and a thirst for innovation!
At Atlassian, we strive to design equitable, explainable, and competitive compensation programs. To support this goal, the baseline of our range is higher than that of the typical market range, but in turn we expect to hire most candidates near this baseline. Base pay within the range is ultimately determined by a candidate's skills, expertise, or experience. In the United States, we have three geographic pay zones. For this role, our current base pay ranges for new hires in each zone are:
Zone A: $222,000 - 296,000
Zone B: $199,800 - 266,400
Zone C: $184,300 - 245,700
This role may also be eligible for benefits, bonuses, commissions, and equity.
Please visit for more information on which locations are included in each of our geographic pay zones. However, please confirm the zone for your specific location with your recruiter.
